Impressions from the trip on the Trans Siberian Railway

From 8/27/2017 to 9/16/2017 we participated in a journey by train from Beijing to Moscow.
The following are the impressions:
1. The trip indeed perfectly matched the advertisements on the Authentico Company website
2. As to organization and planning – it was precise, according to schedule.
3. The sites – The sites we visited were varied and interesting – in Beijing we visited all the famous tourist attractions, the guidance in the city was very good and the tour guide was attentive to our requests. For example: we wanted to see the Olympic Village and although it wasn’t in the program, the tour guide took us to the village. Mongolia – quite fascinating, surprising, and the welcome there was impressive. The tours of the cities of Russia: In all the cities we had excellent guidance, in each city there were highlights specific to the city.
4. The content: As mentioned, excellent guidance, beyond which we were privileged to be exposed to a lot of unique folklore – we met the Buryats in Ulan Ude, the Tatars in Kazan, we were exposed to Mongolian music and Russian folklore.
5. The food – We were served three meals a day, when the meals weren’t on the train we ate in good, fancy restaurants in the different cities – here it’s important to note – a lot of time was spent on meals. The time spent in restaurants was very long and that’s a shame because we could have toured more.
6. The train – The conditions on the train were very good – a high level of cleanliness, the service in every car was courteous, the meals were good, and we were always served hospitably. The only flaw that detracted somewhat was a problem with the hot water in the showers – I, for one, showered only once with hot water, the rest of the showers were freezing.
In conclusion: The tour was perfect, every moment was surprising, the organization and planning were flawless. I warmly recommend it to anyone interested in this journey.
Yael and I thank you for the service we got from the beginning of the trip to its end. I’m attaching some pictures, in the event that you’d like more, I’ll add.
